It’s not the end of the world if OWCP denies your claim as an injured federal worker or discontinues it. It is important to note that this federal agency takes very seriously the weight carried by evidence as well as how well you argue your case in front of them.

In order for you to be successful with an OWCP request for reconsideration, you must:

  • Provide New and Compelling Evidence

This can be in the form of a witness account, or a medical report that clearly and objectively shows that you haven’t healed from your injuries, or the course of treatment was unsuccessful leading to permanent injury, or suffered a consequential injury.

  • Furnish OWCP With New Legal Arguments

You must work with us to create a new legal strategy which we will use to present information that wasn’t covered or discussed in your initial case. We may take a look at the different legal clauses, for example, and show that OWCP acted in a manner that contravened legal tenets as laid down by OPM.

  • File Before The Deadline

You are required to submit a reconsideration request before a year after the OWCP decision has passed. This request is handled by a senior claims examiner who wasn’t involved in your original case. After they give us the green line, we’ll have 20 days to furnish the agency with new evidence and arguments.
